Julian Casablancas (vocals)
The Raven: Julian has drawn comparisons to venerable
Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed. Reed may have White
Light/White Heat, but Julian looks better in a retro T.
Stridex, please: Sure, imitating the godfather of punk is
a great gig, but those breakouts can be so embarrassing!
Nikolai Fraiture (bass)
Here’s to you, mighty wingman: Having a bunch of
good-looking friends is great, but sometimes the ladies leave you
Love those eighth notes, baby: Nikolai may be the quiet
one, but his sturdy lower frequencies keep the hotties in
Albert Hammond Jr. (guitar)
Hair-raising experience: Albert’s frizzy ‘do may seem a
fashion faux paus, but those curly locks may just be the secret to
his sexy guitar magic.
Those are bad for your health, you know: Albert may look
great with a Stratocaster, but we dare you to find a picture of him
without a cigarette in his mouth. A bachelor with yellow teeth?
Good luck Al!
Fabrizio Moretti (drums)
First Crush: Fab and girlfriend Drew Barrymore are New
York’s hot couple! The lovebirds are often seen carousing the
city’s hottest venues. So hip!
Little drummer boy: We know drumming is an aerobic
exercise, but yeesh! Get your man a burger, Drew.
Nick Valensi (guitar)
Naughty, naughty: Nick reportedly blew several amplifiers
trying to find the perfect tone for “12:51.” We hope you’re a handy
The cute one: Though he has a tendency to wear tapered
jeans, Nick’s chic, messy hair and those oh-so-high cheek bones
make him a favorite with the band’s many female fans.
